• ½ Tbsp. pumpkin puree
• ½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
• 1 tsp. vanilla syrup

1. Mix brown sugar, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and vanilla together until well blended (make sure you whip out any clumps).

• 2 cups (about 8 1/2 oz.) all-purpose flour
• 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
• 1 tablespoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon table salt
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
• 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1/2 cup (4 oz.) cold butter, cut into 1/2-in. cubes
• 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
• 2/3 cup plus 2 Tbsp. heavy cream, divided
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 3 to 4 tablespoons heavy cream
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pumpkin spice drizzle
• 3/4 cup powdered sugar
• 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin puree
• 1 tablespoon heavy cream
• 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• Pinch of ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves
Preheat oven to 450°F. Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl. Add butter; use a pastry blender or 2 knives to cut butter into flour mixture until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Freeze 5 minutes.
Whisk together pumpkin puree and 2/3 cup of the heavy cream in a 1 cup glass measuring cup. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn dough out onto the wax paper; pat dough into a 7-inch round (mixture will be crumbly). Cut round into 8 wedges. Place wedges 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush tops of wedges with remaining 2 tablespoons cream just until moistened.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire rack, and cool 5 minutes.
Prepare the Vanilla Glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of cream, and vanilla until smooth.
Add up to 1 tablespoon cream, 1 teaspoon at a time, if needed, to reach desired consistency.
Prepare the Pumpkin Spice Drizzle: Whisk together powdered sugar, pumpkin puree, cream, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves until smooth.
Spread a thin layer of Vanilla Glaze on each scone, and drizzle with Pumpkin Spice Drizzle. Serve warm or room temperature.
